Life and dead end jobs

Happy people cope better with boring, demeaning or stultifying jobs. They make even boring jobs look interesting. They have fun. They learn. They develop their mind and their skills. They also find the nearest exit as soon as possible. Unhappy people get stuck in a rut and switch off. They might go through the motions and turn in acceptable degree of work but the essential spark is missing. They never excel. They can never escape. They are stuck like a needle in a groove. Not going backwards, forwards or sideways. By Fareeha Qayoom

Criticism – a subtle form of abuse

People who like to criticize you tell you, it’s for your own good. You should be able to take a little constructive criticism. That’s how you grow. The funny thing is, the so-called advice never empowers you – it diminishes you. The criticism in any case is supposed to put you in your place, whatever, that is, in the abusers mind. It’s never about you, it’s about them. By Fareeha Qayoom

I can get no satisfaction!

At all costs, protect your brain from atrophying or getting stuck in a rut. By the way, boring jobs sap your creativity and mentally fatigue you. You become depressed without knowing it and nothing seems interesting anymore. You stop taking interest in your hobbies, your family and friends or even in normal every day activities…at the end of the day, everything becomes a major effort. When you get home, you just want to flop down somewhere and not move if you can help it. You might also become irritable, pick fights with little or no provocation and usually snap at family and friends and are generally lethargic at weekends. Bottom line, boring job is detrimental to your mental health. Change it as soon as possible. By Fareeha Qayoom

Pakistan: Why most start-up’s fail?

Failing organizations have one thing in common without fail, they lack ethics – (in other words, when it’s a question of ‘money vs. doing the right thing’, they always pick the money!). They also practice a lot of deceit across the board. By Fareeha Qayoom
